THE inaugural In the Spotlight showcase will take place at The Loft in Warrnambool on Friday.
Emerging three-piece Warrnambool outfit Worm, jazz/swing act Cadence and band The Stoney Rises are the three acts scheduled to perform.
The Loft owner Lynny Mast said the In the Spotlight concept was a step up from the Open Mike format. The first act will be in stage from 8pm.
Apollo Bay band Hey Mammoth will play after the conclusion of the In the Spotlight segment.
The band is linked to In the Spotlight, having come up with the name for the concept.
Hey Mammoth have a following in the south-west after playing at this year’s Port Fairy Folk Festival.
